For this month’s Chewy.com review, I chose Instinct Raw Boost Minis to review. We got a package of the rabbit flavored Minis.
The front and back of the package:
I assumed that the ingredient list would read “Ingredients: Rabbit. Freeze dried. DUH.”, but the ingredients list was longer than I expected:
Rabbit, Pork Liver, Pork Heart, Pumpkinseeds, Carrots, Apples, Butternut Squash, Ground Flaxseed, Montmorillonite Clay, Dried Kelp, Broccoli, Mixed Tocopherols, Apple Cider Vinegar, Salmon Oil, Rosemary Extract, Blueberries, Dried Chicory Root
What did the cats think? (Please note, not all cats were present for this, because they have busy and fulfilling lives and sometimes don’t feel like coming down to help me out, because they are BRATS.)
Sheriff Mama (Kara) thought those treats were quite tasty.
Stefan REALLY liked them, to the point where he jumped out of his (Chewy.com) box full of brown paper and followed me around the house.
For a big – shall we say portly? – cat, Newt is much pickier than you’d expect. He licked at one of the treats, but didn’t eat any.
Sugarbutt dug right in, and pronounced the treats quite tasty.
Alice was a big fan and inhaled hers in no time flat.
Joe Bob said “Lady, these is tasty, and I approves.”
Stefan said “I’ll be right here if you find that you have some extras.”
Miz Poo said “I do not care for these. I might care for them tomorrow or the next day or in ten minutes, but right now you better get these things off my bed.”
Alice said “I’ll take hers!”
Jake said “I hear there are treats being handed out. Gimme.”
He was a big fan of them, too.
Dennis said “These are tasty, and I am beautiful.”
The biggest surprise to me was that Archie took a look, took a lick, and said “No, thanks.” I don’t think I’ve ever had him turn down food before!
Dennis and Jake said “We’ll take his!”
Tommy came wandering in, ate a couple, and said they were okay, but not his favorite.
And the kittens? What did the kittens think?
They dove right in. I love how Mary’s ears are folded back.
Mary really liked them.
Paul really liked them.
And Peter was also a big fan.
Then he thought about how good they were.
Paul thought Mary was encroaching on his space, so he gave her The Paw of Nope and a quiet growl.
So, all in all, more cats liked the treats than didn’t – they were a particular favorite of Alice and Stefan, who will probably end up getting the rest of the bag of treats (since they loved them SO much), doled out one or two every now and again.
The treats were provided by Chewy.com, if you couldn’t tell, but all opinions were the cats’, interpreted by me.
Thanks for the opportunity, Chewy. You rock!
